I'd normally never do this, but my brother needs help.

Postby FuzzHugger » Wed Aug 08, 2018 11:43 am

My brother is a great dude, and we almost lost him a month ago due to a defective firework that blew up on the ground...he almost lost his dominant hand, with only his tendons keeping it attached. If he didn't have the presence of mind to have a friend apply a tourniquet, doctors said he would've died. He's faced six surgeries since then. You can say what you want about fireworks, but an accident is an accident. He's an awesome father and a fellow small business owner, and like a lot of Americans, doesn't have health or mortgage insurance.

I created the GoFundMe a while back, but I just made it public last night...I made it solely for my brother's family and friends, many of whom have asked me to set one up so they can help...but:
If you'd consider helping him out, though he's a stranger, I'll give you double that amount off a direct-ordered FuzzHugger pedal. ($5=$10, $10=$20, etc.)

https://www.gofundme.com/stephendalton

Conditions?
1) Build-time might vary (though I can give best estimates), especially because I don't know how many people will take me up on this offer.
2) Any custom build has to be built around my production circuits, and a list of options/upgrades I can provide.
3) Discount up to 40% off per build, can apply to multiple builds.

Thanks for considering! :hug:

How long is the gofundme running Tom?
I'm tapped out until I get paid on the 25th.

Yeah want to contribute, bad time to be cash poor/stuck in a soft market where selling to raise monies is rife with loss. Would rather the $ stretch and go toward good cause so if an ILF member want a Hardwire DL-8 in box for $80, I'll donate 50% of whatever's left after shipping

I'm afraid it isn't much, but I gave what I could. My best wishes to your brother for a full recovery. :hug:

Thank you so much!

Thank you to all who have given so far. Wow!
You're helping a great guy & his family so they can keep their home and focus on recovery. Next week, he's scheduled to have rods put in...his wrist will be fused, but with physical therapy, we hope he can eventually work again.

Also, I should say, there's no expiration on my offer to double that amount off the cost of a pedal. Whenever the time comes, I'm happy to chat: tom@fuzzhugger.com
